It may be surprising, but Mexico City is the second largest Port for fish, second to only Tokyo. With that said, you may be a bit skeptical to eat raw fish here. I came to El K from a friend's recommendation and it did not...More

We ate here several times during our trip--it's that good. Well, actually we ate at the street stand location of the restaurant (and the original location), which is at the corner of Ayuntamiento and Lopez. That location was so popular--it has about 10 seats total--that...More

A small place in downtown Mexico, in a rather uninteresting neighbourhood – near some artisan markets and the Image Center –. Although not confortable or especially beatiful, the food more than compensates for it: all forms of seafood – fish tacos, seafood cocktails, fries fish,...More
